BotW: The Un-Table

by at 11:48 am.

A very happy two-week un-birthday…to an appointment motion. BotW continues to rehash the same stuff week after week…how appropriate that we celebrated Groundhog Day on Sunday, right?

This Council can’t seem to even get out of its own way. Well, place your bets. You know the stakes. You know the restrictions (one person per item, one guess per person, the more obscure the agenda item the bigger the prize). So here’s the agenda! You have until 6:30pm tomorrow to make your guess!

    Trash collection schedule

  4. Christopher Says:

    Don’t know if it will be a blowup, but I’m glad to see the Library appointment being taken from the table. These have always been routine rubber stamps.

  5. Eleanor Rigby Says:

    I am pretty certain that the property was part of the Town of Dracut (yes, after Lowell was formed an annexed land from Dracut) and the Lowell used it as a dump, later the city bought the land from the town and it became part of the city. I am 90% sure of this, so that would mean the city, at some point, sold the land to a private person or company.

    Opps I posted to the wrong thread sorry
